Bodicote is a popular village situated to the south of Banbury towards Adderbury. The village has a fine parish church dating from the 12th Century, an excellent primary school and two pubs (one Indian restaurant), hairdressing salon, post office and a mini-supermarket. There is also a playing field with child's play area, active village hall and Banbury Cricket Club.
Further amenities can be found at the market town of Banbury and further afield in Oxford and Chipping Norton. There are regular rail services from Banbury to Marylebone from 55 minutes and M40 connection about 3 miles away at junction 11
Located on a no through lane, Old Barn Cottage is a charming, detached house with many period features including some wood mullion windows. Built of local ironstone under a red clay roof and thought to date from the 18th Century with much earlier origins, the property is Listed Grade II and would benefit from some updating.
From the hallway, leads to a flagstone double aspect family room with multi fuel burner in the corner. From here, a door opens to the sitting room with a large inglenook with an open fire and French doors opening to the garden. The kitchen breakfast room is dated and has a slate floor and extensive wall and floor cupboards with a stable door opening to the garden. A wood staircase rises to the first floor with four bedrooms and a tongue and grooved family bathroom – including bedroom 1 with an ensuite WC and wash basin and a corner bath. There is access to a large boarded usable attic space under a steeply pitched roof.
There is a paved parking area to the front with a vehicular gate giving access to the rear garden. The south facing walled garden is laid to lawn with a concrete area in front of a useful outbuilding (formerly two stables) with potential to improve and convert into a home office or just leave as storage.
